SOURCE: Refrigerator trips GFI outlet
unlikely to be the defrost timer. more likely to be the defrost element. try disconnecting the element and see if it trips then. could be of course a wiring fault - frayed wires etc

Your fridge may be overheating from an electrical short causing the fridge to go into auto shutdown so that it will not catch fire. You will need to get it checked up in a shop to confirm the suspicion and to get it fixed.

Not the compressor. Two reasons why. If your compressor was bad, you would not hear it at all, also the compressor would be very hot, do to the piston not moving and the shaft just moving or the liquid not turning into vapor. One way to check for sure is to take a multimeter and see your voltage. You can also touch the suction and the liquid line, if one is cold and the other is hot or warm then compressor is working ok. Also when you unplug the system and you reset everything, you are not reseting the compressor you are reset the relay

Have you been hearing a clicking noise coming from behind the unit? This is the first indication of a failed compressor relay. Pull the unit out and unplug it. Remove the back cover and go to the compressor. You will find a device on the side of the compressor that has the wires hooked to it. This is the compressor relay and overload. It may be under a black cap. Remove the cap to access it. It may have 2 pieces to it or it may just have the 2 pieces encased in a white and tan box. Remove this box and shake it. If it rattles like gravel in it then it is bad. If it is in 2 pieces then it will have a brown relay. This is the piece that will rattle if bad. The white and black piece with one wire is the overload. They most never go bad. Use this replacement part kit...8201786 and follow the detailed instructions included in the kit. Thanks for the question. Hope this helps.
